Jason Koharik is a self-taught artist and craftsman whose methods and works are always evolving. He was born and raised in Bedford, Ohio, and later made a name for himself as an artist and designer in Los Angeles, California. He works from his own studio and showroom in Glassell Park, relying on timeless methods to design and handcraft a sophisticated line of lighting and furniture.
His work is inspired by the fluid beauty and natural forms of the Art Nouveau period, as well as an effort to create a unique silhouette that occupies space as an anomaly within it’s interior. Each piece takes on a one-of-a-kind quality. Working with natural materials such as wood, steel, brass and leather, he seeks a balance between furniture and sculpture, and feels successful when you cannot tell the difference.
In addition to his own sculptural lighting and furniture designs, Jason also collects rare and unusual vintage furniture & objects, which he often transforms into an entirely new one-of-a-kind piece, through the use of his own unique upholstery, hand-stitched leather, metal and wood working skills.
